    diff fluid volume.. about 1.5 qt? + need torques for reassembly of rear hub

    Just filled my new gen 4 diff. fed a tube from a sqeeze bottle. total consumption before weeping was 1.5 quart. sound right? I just jammed the plastic tube into the fill port did not judge how far it was in as long as it was in (but was deep)... this sound ok?

    also looking for all the torques for reassembling the rear hub assembly. I dont see them in the quick and dirty torques in the FAQ, nor were they included in the axle instructions.

    torques for the following?

    shock mount to hub
    trailing arm to hub
    ball joint nut on hub
    tie rod bolt to hub
    spindle nut

    thanks guys

    Look for the instructions to install axles, the torque instructions will be in there (it's what i used)

    Mine took right about 1.5 qts as well, as long as it is coming out the fill hole, you should be good.

    found the specs another user had in one of his posts

    Also, torque specs that I didn't see in Chris's instructions:
    Spindle Nut 118 lb/ft
    Upper ball joint nut (I didn't bother to take it off, it wasn't necessary) 15 lb/ft plus additional 210 degree turn
    Lower Control Arm to knuckle bolt 129 lb/ft
    Lower shock mounting bolt 111 lb/ft
    Trailing arm to knuckle bolt 129 lb/ft
    Adjustment link to knuckle bolt 129 lb/ft
